As many of you may know, "Servus" is a greeting in parts of Germany such as Sachsen, Bayern, and other southern parts. According to popular belief, you can't say "Moin" anywhere south of Hamburg because nobody will know it, but I conquered that myth many times here in Brandenburg. The real goal, was to get someone to say Servus back to me, and this week it was accomplished. The borders of where you can say what fell harder than the Berlin Wall. Nonetheless, it did take many tries, everywhere from people saying "hallo?" quite confused back, to them just making sounds that are similar to a villager in minecraft. It makes it fun saying hi to people.
Man, this week flew by. Elder Pen Rah See (Elder Penrose) and I had a wonderful Tausch, where I continued my streak of beating him in chess every time he tries. We also had ZoKo, (zone conference) which was pretty alright. The best part about it was having it in Freiberg.
Since we left so early, we made it to the temple earlier and got to do more work than some of the other missionaries, which was pretty sweet. The temple is a sick place, and nice that me and Elder Oliver are now famous among the workers there. (after going 3 weeks straight.) Now we just need to find a way to get there this coming week so we can keep our streak going on that one.

We had an investigator come to church which was quite fantastic. We met this wonderful Arabic lady at the Tafel, and she ended up asking us for the address of our church this week, and actually came! She had a great time, and said she wants to come every week now.
What's interesting about her that I had never heard, she is from Syria, but was raised Christian. Like what? Syria, Christians, didn’t think those mixed, BUT her city had mostly Christian churches and only a small amount of Muslim ones, how sick is that? Hopefully we see good things come from her.
Anyways, that was just about a recap of my week. This week come the transfer calls and I’m really hoping I stay here, because of how great this branch and area is, but we will see!
Have an above average week,
